Q:I received a bulb with external LEDs with one of my LAL lamps and the other 3 were internal LEDs.

Definitely not the life expectancy mentioned.

Comments about Light-a-Life Replacement Bulb:
We use this led light bulb while camping to light up both our camper and tent. We also use it while working around camp at night. Uses very little battery power.
We are very pleased with the quality of the goal zero products.
We are have this bulb in a lamp in our front room, my husband ran electric cord from batteries to our front room. The light is on about 5-6 hrs a day, 7 days a week. Our batteries are charged by solar panels which helps keep our electric bill down. Really helps to have a battery operated light when the electric goes out.
